and let the rice cakes slowly shift through the
fruiting temperature range. Note that everything else must be right.
The rice cake must have a fully developed mycelium network and
there must be light. The Ice-Pak should be placed between 1/4 and 1/2
inch from the rice cakes. A flat Ice-Pak will work, but if you have the
option, get one that is designed to slip into the center of a six-pak. It
will have circular indents molded into each side and it will conform to
the shape of the rice cakes better. If everything was ready, you should
see pin heads develop 3 or 4 days after you perform this adaptation. If
you don't see any develop after 3 or 4 days, you can repeat this

operation again. The networks may not have been developed full
enough and the few days since the last attempt may have been enough
time to change this fact.
You can still initiate prolific flushes with the terrarium above the
normal temperature range. The optimum temperature for growing
mushrooms is higher than what is necessary to initiate new
mushrooms and is between 80 and 90 degrees F. This adaptation can
let the cultivator grow at the maximum rate, and still produce new
mushrooms on the cakes.
The Ice-Pak will lower the humidity in the terrarium. Mostly, this is
an issue when you have mushrooms on cakes that are part way
through the growing cycle and not ready to harvest. They will usually
survive the bad growing conditions for the six hours it takes the Ice-
Pak to initiate fruiting, but they will suffer for it. You need to have an
ultra sonic humidifier setup on your terrarium. Nothing else will be
able to keep the humidity high enough. You can turn the humidity
control up a little, but you will have to continue to adjust it down as
the Ice-Pak loses its cool. If too much moisture forms on the cakes, it
will prevent the initiation of pin heads and that was the whole purpose
of this operation.

Adaptation-17: Adding Moisture to the Rice Cake.
After a cake has produced several mushrooms you can add moisture
to it. Flame sterilize a 3/16 inch drill bit. Let it cool. Use it to drill a
hole at the center of the cake. You can do this by hand. You do not
need a drill. Do not go all the way through the cake, but drill a deep

reservoir into the cake. Cut a plastic straw to 4 inches in length. Insert
the straw 1/2 inch into the hole. The straw should fit tightly in the
cake. Straws from McDonalds are larger than most and work well.
They seal well and hold more water. Fill the straw with water daily. A
10 cc. syringe works well to fill the straws with water. You should
wait to drill the hole until the cake has produced some mushrooms

the alumina, two zones that fluoresce blue can be spotted by
illumination with a black light. The faster-moving zone contains LSD,
while the slower-moving zone is iso-LSD.
When the zone containing LSD reaches the spigot of the burette, it
should be collected in a separate flask. About 3000 ml of the 3-1
benzene-chloroform is required to get the LSD moved down the
chromatography column, and finally eluted.
The iso-LSD is then flushed from the column by switching the
solvent being fed into the top of the column to chloroform. This
material is collected in a separate flask, and the solvent removed
under a vacuum. The residue is iso-LSD, and should be stored in the
freezer until conversion to LSD is undertaken. Directions for this are
also given in this chapter.
For the fraction containing the LSD, conversion to LSD tartrate
must be done to make it water soluble, improve its keeping
characteristics, and to allow crystallization. Tartaric acid has the
ability to react with two molecules of LSD. Use, then, of a 50% excess of
tartaric acid dictates the use of about 1 gram of tartaric acid to 3
grams of LSD. The three grams of LSD would be expected from a
well-done batch out of a total 3.5 LSD/iso-LSD mix.
The crystalline tartrate is made by dissolving one gram of tartaric
acid in a few mis of methanol, and adding this acid solution to the
benzene-chloroform elute from the chromatography column.
Evaporation of the solvent to a low volume under a vacuum gives
crystalline LSD tartrate. Crystals are often difficult to obtain. Instead,
an oil may result due to the presence of impurities. This is not cause
for alarm; the oil is still likely 90%+ pure. It should be bottled up in
dark glass, preferably under a nitrogen atmosphere, and kept in a
freezer until moved.
If chromatography reveals that one's chosen cooking method
produces little of the iso products, then the production of the tartrate
salt and crystallization is simplified. The residue obtained at the end

of the batch is dissolved in a minimum amount of methanol. To this is
then added tartaric acid. The same amount is added as above: one gram
tartaric acid to three grams LSD. Next, ether is slowly added with
vigorous stirring until a precipitate begins to form. The stoppered flask is
then put in the freezer overnight to complete the precipitation. After
filtering or centrifuging to isolate the product, it is transferred to a dark
bottle, preferably under nitrogen, and kept in the freezer until moved.

Two variations on this procedure will be presented here. The first is
the method of Smith and Timmis from The Journal of the
Chemistry Society Volume 139, H pages 1168-1169 (1936). The other is
found in US patent 2,736,728. Both use the action of a strong
hydroxide solution to convert iso material into a mixture that contains
active and iso material. At equilibrium, the mixture contains about 2/3

When all the methyl nitrite has been bubbled into the reaction
mixture, stirring should be continued for another hour. Then, if
palladium bromide was used, it should be filtered out. Repeated
filtrations will be needed to remove all of the catalyst, because it gets
quite finely divided during the course of the reaction. This leaves a
clear light-reddish solution. If palladium bromide was used, now
adjust pH to 4-7, and allow another hour to complete the hydrolysis.
If palladium chloride or the mixed catalyst was used, these
substances are soluble in alcohol. In this case, the catalyst will be
recovered later. Here, check the pH of the solution again to be sure it is
in the proper range before proceeding.
Now the alcohol solvent must be removed. This is best done by
pouring the reaction mixture into a large filtering flask, stoppering the
top of the flask, and removing the solvent under a vacuum. Use of a
hot-water bath to speed evaporation is highly recommended for this
process. It is not OK to distill off the alcohol at normal pressure, as
the heat will cause the nitrite and NO in solution to do bad things to the
To the residue left in the flask after removal of the alcohol, add
some toluene to rinse the product out of the flask into a sep funnel.
Next, put 300 ml of water into the flask to dissolve the catalyst if
PdCla or the mixed catalyst was used. Add the water solution to the
sep funnel to dissolve carried-over catalyst there, then drain this water

solution of catalyst into a dark bottle and store in the dark until the
next batch. If PdBr2 was used, this step can be skipped. Just store the
filtered-out PdBra under water in the dark.
Now the toluene-phenylacetone solution should be distilled
through a Claisen adapter packed with some pieces of broken glass to
effect fractionation. The first of the toluene should be distilled at
normal pressure to remove water from solution azeotropically. The
b.p. of the azeotrope is 85° C, while water-free toluene boils at 110° C.
When the water is removed from solution, turn off the heat on the
distillation, and carefully apply a vacuum to remove the remainder of
the toluene. Then with the vacuum still on, resume heating the flask,
and collect the substituted phenylacetone. Methylenedioxyphenylacetone
distills at about 140° C and 160° C using a good aspirator
with cold water. A poor vacuum source leads to much higher
distillation temps and tar formation in the distilling flask. The yield
from the reaction is close to 150 ml of phenylacetone. Its color should be
clear to a light yellow. The odor of methylenedioxyphenylacetone is
much like regular phenylacetone, with a trace of the candy shop odor
of the safrole from which it was made.
A higher-boiling phenylacetone like 2,4,5-trimethyloxyphenylacetone
is better purified as the bisulfite addition product, unless a
